A video capturing the moment of the Ukrainian Air Force's Nov. 4 missile attack hit the shipyard in Russian-occupied Kerch was published by the Krymsky Veter (Crimean Wind) Telegram channel.
The clip shows the explosion at the shipyard and the work of the enemy’s air defense systems.
13 of the 15 Ukrainian cruise missiles fired at the Kerch shipyard were destroyed in the air, while one hit a ship, Russia’s Defense Ministry said earlier, without naming the ship.
One of the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s most modern ships, capable of carrying Russia’s Kalibr cruise missiles, was the target of the Nov. 4 strike on the Zaliv shipyard in Kerch, confirmed Ukrainian Air Force Commander, Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk.
While cautioning to wait for official confirmation, Oleshchuk said that "one of the most modern ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet," a Kalibr cruise missile carrier, was at the shipyard at the time of the attack.
The Ukrainian Air Force successfully hit the Zaliv shipyard's sea and port infrastructure, the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ Strategic Communications Directorate reported on Nov. 4.
Locals claimed that a Project 22800 small missile carrier corvette may have been damaged in the attack, while Krymsky Veter reported that the Russian 2021 small cruise missile carrier Askold was damaged.
